Bowerbuilder datawindow autosize problem

You have a datawindow. Datawindow has an Autosize Height set to Details band. You insert a row, set a long string value to some field expecting that field to be auto-sized. And it is, but you don’t see a text as Details band does not auto-size. What to do? Whan way to fix this is to call Sort() somewhere after you set v the value fro the datawindow to refresh and auto-size to take effect. But that does not work all times ( for example … you dont want to sort data now). Another way is to set:

dw.Modify ( ‘DataWindow.Header.Height.AutoSize=yes’)

This will also make datawindow to resize all the bands and auto-size will take effect then.
